I hear you Ken! Good luck and you have my prayers. I have been fighting knee pain for a while now and the move has aggregated it so much I have been thinking about a knee replacement. So, I feel your pain just a little lower. You will feel better after it is done. Do it now, so you can enjoy your life and be more active. (Do not throw this back in my face when you see me limping... )

Keep your rubber on the road and your feet on the pegs and have a good ride.

Oh wow, I missed this thread. I feel ya. I turned 50 and my body decided to start falling apart. Good luck and I wish you a speedy recovery. I hope everything goes smoothly and you are back riding pain-free in short order.

Getting old s*cks! At least they still make replacement part for the older models and from what I hear, they are pretty good. Best of luck with the surgery and rehab.

Big mistake Lu... make that huge mistake...never talk about not having any health issues... tomorrow you are guaranteed to wake up with all sorts of never ending aches and pains.

Whats the big hurry...slow down and enjoy the ride!

Best Wishes for a speedy recovery. Glad they can fix it! Wife is having trouble with her knees and we don't know how long she will have to suffer with it before they put new ones in. Not sure how much riding she is going to do with me. Might be trailering the bike more so she can better participate.

Bored stiff, but doing well. Just got back from my second lap around the floor. Took half as much time as the first one. 🙂

Going home around noon tomorrow.

Amazing that you go home 1 day later. Glad it all went well. Be religious with the rehab and you'll be back in the saddle in no time.
